in this house. we stan mariteaux. in 1998 and beyond.
I can confirm we're not all little kids. I'm nearly 30. Sometimes, I think about giving my account of using 1997-early 2000 internet as a kid, but I don't know if anyone really would be interested.
I do appreciate that much, but a lot of the active Neocities people that I've had the displeasure of interacting with do skew young, and it's basically ruined the site for me. A lot of you are cool, I just don't hear from you as much, so it gets discouraging.
Sad you're leaving. I liked both sites. I didn't always agree with you, but you put alot of work into them, which I respect. Don't confuse simple sites with passionless sites; it's just what folk do when starting. With practice, everyone improves, tho they may improve in unexpected ways. Without Neocities, where else would someone new start?
Hindsight being what it is, maybe some of the people I've railed against could've done something better with their sites with time and encouragement, but I've burned a bunch and been burned a bunch for it to matter, I guess. It's probably best to hibernate this shit.
I'm actually 52 (on the subject of average ages on neocities). I'm always aware that our content would probably not interest others on the site, but we just do what we're interested in. On the subject of being burned, my feeling is that I look at things longer term. Continue with what you are doing. What's happening today isn't how things will necessarily be in 6 months time.
You're leaving but you just found the secret to your angst; and that being what all great artists know: It doesn't matter what anybody else is Arting. Art for yourself - for your own pleasure, your own desire to mold something that has never been seen before, your own joy. Now that you've got the spirit, stop "railing against" and....CREATE, little fox-beast. :)!
Oh, and I grew up with rotary phones, transistor radios, UHF/VHF, vinyl BEFORE it was retro, mechanical typewriters, and, yes, even ringerwashers! So that makes meeee....Holy crap! I'm old!! :O
I don't think this is forever, but it is the end of me around here for a good bit. I tried to keep creating even throughout this mess, but with Neocities having burned up the last four months of my life, it wasn't happening.
Believe me, I have a mess of song demos, short story snippets, fic ideas, fantasy worldbuilding nonsense, and some other bits I wanna get back to. Not having to focus on sites will help with it for sure. Better yet, I got a couple new close friends to share it with.
Pretty hype for 2019, all in all.
"... I have a mess of song demos, short story snippets, fic ideas, fantasy worldbuilding nonsense..." That sounds cool! Well, we'll be here when ya come back No worries. :)
Oh, and if I don't see ya soon, then...https://arkmsworld.neocities.org/living_room_xmas.html
lol the server's dead nerd
> being this conserned about what other people do with their free time on their free websites
If you think the "consern" is just about what some idiot kid's site is about, you're more clueless than you look, and you look like you never had it to begin with.
You are precisely the cancer neocities needs less off and literally nobody would miss your unending saltiness and toxicity if you committed sudoku yesterday.
I'm being very literal btw. I suggest this app: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.secuso.privacyfriendlysudoku/
Aren't you the guy that thinks "incel pedo suicide" is the greatest joke ever? Who even reads your site aside from strata?
I'm the guy who thinks a work's values lie in its intrinsic qualities rather than popularity, but I realise not everyone has matured past the age of 5. I guess your temper tantrums are to be expected of a toddler.
Wow, that's a lot of big words for the guy whose entire persona is based around jacking off to underage girls. I'm just saying, don't moralfag when you have the sense of humor of a reject chantard.
lol vas liked the last reply
